Motherson Sumi Systems - Greenfield plants loss reduction a key positive - ICICI Securities

Posted On: 2020-08-12 02:56:18

Motherson Sumi Systems' (MSS) Q1FY21 performance missed consensus estimates higher than expected revenue drop (~50%) exacerbated the negative operating leverage effect. However, over recent past the key monitorable for MSS's stock has been greenfield plant loss trends which showcased marked improvement (Refer chart:1) even as revenues dropped (>40% QoQ). The key has been fixed-cost optimisation, productivity improvement during shutdown. We expect greenfield plants to turn EBITDA positive by Q4FY21. We continue to like MSS due to: a) its strong competitive position across regions, segments (M&HCV / PV / 2W) and products (interiors / exteriors / wiring harness); b) rising content per vehicle (e.g. wiring harness, mirrors) aiding gross margins; and c) non-linear improvement in earnings as greenfield plants turn EPS-accretive. Maintain BUY.

- Key highlights of the quarter: Overall consolidated revenues stood at Rs85bn (down ~49% YoY), dragged down by SMRPBV (down 50% to EUR731mn) and SMR (down 55% to ~EUR180bn). The standalone business reported a revenue decline of 76% at ~Rs4.4bn as margins slumped 4,332bps to -26.3%. SMP witnessed 1,096bps YoY contraction in reported margins at -8.3% while PKC reported 198bps decline at 8.1%. Consolidated net debt rose Rs2.16bn QoQ to Rs9bn in order to maintain sufficient cash for working capital while total liquidity remained flat at Rs100bn.

- Key takeaways from earnings call: a) Current capacity utilisation stands at ~80% as majority of the plants (~85%) globally are operating at more than 50% capacity; b) cashflow position declined in Q1 as working capital increased by Rs9bn and exchange rate fluctuation led to benefit of Rs1.8bn; c) the April-May lockdown period helped the company to focus on profitability in greenfield plants through re-layouting, reorganising and training of manpower, which are expected to expedite breakeven; d) SMP Kecskemet plant is expected to reach peak revenues in FY21; the Tuscaloosa plant is likely to peak in FY22 as focus on cost-cutting has led to ~30% headcount reduction; e) for PKC, China plants are operating at >100% capacity while Europe is recovering at a fast pace; and f) company has received grants for furlough benefits, which aided in maintaining debt levels; capex for FY21 is expected to be Rs20bn;.

- Maintain BUY: We revise our earnings growth estimates by -59% in FY21E due to Q1 impact and raise FY22E estimates by 2.2%. We continue to like the stock (even after the recently rally) as its FCF yield remains strong (~7%/12% in FY21E/22E respectively). We value MSS on SoTP basis and maintain our multiple for India at 24x while raising multiple for international subsidiaries to 14x (earlier: 12x) FY22E EPS considering improving outlook on greenfield plants. Maintain BUY with a revised target price of Rs126/share (earlier: Rs122).
